Anyone have any luck with this?

Hello, madgardener here........I just discovered that there is a REBLOOMING LILAC (Syringia) by the name of 'Jocie' that blooms in late May and then again once established (about two or three years depending on the root size) in late September or October. Anyone have this new lilac and have any luck with it? As you know, I am in zone 7 (straddling 6b-7a) and since this lilac carries the name of a future daughter in law, I figured it would be a nice addition to my family of shrubs. Thanks in advance for the information.

I briefly did a little surfing Maddy and this is all that I came up with so far. It's a dwarf lilac and the name is "Josee". I'm wondering if I could plant this in a container on my balcony, I live in Seattle......hmmmmm.
